Michael Endicott is a Fine Art photographer in San Francisco, California. Much of his adult life has been spent working at the intersection of the political and biological sciences. His camera has been his constant companion and his focus has always been on nature. His artistic perspective is an outgrowth of his experience, at the intersection of the "two worlds" shaped by nature and wo/man. His artwork explores the commonality in structure between the organic and the inorganic –both are comprised of protons, electrons and neutrons.
In essence, Michael produces cellular tapestries designed to connect the micro and macro structures that give shape and life to our world. Over time, his process in the digital darkroom has become more “sculptural” in nature as he bends wavelengths of light and molds multiple shots into one, and his photography has been pulled away from realism into the realm of expressionist or abstract painting. Most recently his abstract realism, The Mad Hatter, was part of the de Young Open at end of 2020 (de Young Museum, San Francisco, CA).

"My cellular tapestries explore the structural commonality between organic and inorganic –both comprised of protons, electrons and neutrons. The click of the shutter is where my artistic vision coalesces. The photo itself then becomes the object of my attention. I get very excited by the space created in abstract and surreal photography for the viewers to see their own stories in my artwork." Michael’s work is currently on view at Gallery House in Palo Alto, and was recently part of the de Young Open at end of 2020.
